seems like its good so i think ill keep it here.


Thanks for all the help.
i stream and play games so i think ill stay here should be good enough for what i do.

Thanks to this guide I was able to overclock my 3570k to 4.4 GHz. I tried OCing my CPU a couple of months ago, but I was unable to get past 4.2 GHz without using insane amounts of volts. I also kept getting BSODs. After using this guide, I was able to achieve an astounding 4.4 GHz with minimal increases in voltage. I attempted to go for 4.5 GHz, but unfortunately, my CPU cooler isn't good enough. My temps were in the 90-95*C range.

For reference, I'm using the following parts...

-i5 3570k => CPU
-ASRock Z75 Pro3 => Motherboard
-NZXT Havik 140 => CPU Cooler
-8GB G.Skill RAM @1866MHz 9-10-9-24

I'm still running prime95 in order to further test the stability, and my temps are around 80*C at full load. I'm happy with it so far. I didn't expect to get this far on an $85 motherboard. I'm gonna try my best to let this run for 24 hours. Hopefully things won't get too hot.

Can someone help me please, I just don't understand what I should be setting the LLC to, or what to do to find my lowest voltage and highest overclock. I have read this guide through seven times, and I just don't understand. Normally I'm fine with this type of thing, but it's driving me nuts now.

I'm stable at 4.4GHz, hitting 74c max after a half hour Prime95, averaged at 60c, but I'd like to see if I can push it any higher.
I've attached images of my settings below, any help would be appreciated.
My system is listed in the sig.

@Proxish

Your BIOS settings look fine. You did not mention what your loaded VCore is, but if your are loading below 1.35ish, then you still have room.

there are really only three steps from here.

1.up multiplier by 1
2.increase turbo by .004 until stable (usually takes between .030-.050 for each multiplier added)
3.rinse/repeat until you reach thermal limit, voltage limit, or desired multiplier.

Thank you for the help, I'll start doing that over the next day and see what I get.

I'm not sure how to properly read my VCore, I'm running Prime95 right now and my core voltage is running at 1.120-1.128. But am I supposed to read it like that, or the highest it's peaked? I couldn't find any information on what to do with LLC and VCore, or at least, if I did I didn't understand it.

Sitting at 1.136v to 1.144v now.

You have plenty of room for additional voltage and could likely stabilize 4.8-5.0 if you upgrade your cooling solution. With your current set-up 4.5-4.6 might be about as far as you can go and maintain comfortable temperatures.

Then again...there is always the free temperature drop if you have the constitution

I would set LLC to Level 3 or 2. What is your idle vcore in CPU-z? What multiplier are you trying to reach?

You will definitely want to run Prime 95 longer then 30 minutes for final stability test. I ran mine for 8 hours but others recommend 12. thumb.gif

Wow man, I just updated my BIOS and lost my OC settings in the process. Your guide helped me get my CPU back to normal. Obviously after a few stable years you forget overclocking so thank you a lot! :-)

I've wanted to delid for a long time now, but I'm in no place to replace it if I **** it up, so for not, I'm staying safe.
What kind of upgrade do you think is necessary? I was looking at the H100, it's going for a decent deal, the only other thing I've been looking at is the Noctua NH-D14, but because I have high profile ram, I'd have to move the ram over for it to fit.
What do you think?

Right now, my Core Voltage as I sit here typing is hovering around 0.912v to 0.920v.
I'd love to reach 5Ghz, wouldn't be interested in going any higher than that.

Can you please explain how I'm supposed to know whether to up my LLC or not? I don't really understand how I'm supposed to know.
